Games go black screen if you try running them with open drivers. This could be hard coded.

NVIDIA open source driver
Basic question: why are NVIDIA open drivers unable to run games? Is it unable to run complex commands too?

That worked. Still were using SSH to do it before though.

Yes, I found OrangeFox at GitLab - I guess we have TWRP at home, just like Mom says.

I used GitHub before, never needed a SSH key. Did some repo inits yesterday, as it is, and things went really smoothly for me.

But, you know, setting up a SSH key isn’t really that easy. I’ll see if I can do something about it, however.

GitHub's ass
GitHub is not giving me way to init repo of TWRP. It's a public repository. Here's what it says: Downloading manifest from git@github.com:minimal-manifest-twrp/platform_manifest_twrp_aosp.git git@github.com: Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists. manifests: sleeping 4.0 seconds before retrying git@github.com: Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository. I'm so fucking blessed. I tried forking it, but no luck at all, GitHub doesn't want to give me way even in my own profile. Thoughts about it?

Firefox trusts Rust, I distrust Rust. It’s as simple as that.

Rapping is very good, it’s like an evolution of Soul.

We will definitely fuck things up, the Anthropocene should never be a thing.

Why would you want an Operating System to rule them all?

If Windows commands the Manufacturer boot menu, that’s really a problem.

Switching to Linux using the Mint installer shouldn’t be hard at all. Don’t try using Windows options to do it, duh.

You need to set the boot mode into your Flash Drive before rebooting - in my PC it’s the F2 key for boot menu.

If you don’t change the boot mode it will always boot into the default OS that came with the manufacturer.

Lasers, graphene - those will be expensive logic gates. Why not use other kinds of light?

They can try. Don’t know if these involuntary virgins will get way to fuck even paying for it.

Anyone knows the function of this miner? It's bundled together with libexec, and [this](https://man.archlinux.org/man/tracker-miner-fs-3.1.en) website says it's supposed to mine data from the filesystem. Does anyone know if this info stays here inside my PC?

Torch package
Torch package is weighing 750 Mb, does anybody know why is it so heavy?

Let’s hope open hardware advances quickly now. This quantum bottleneck should take care of things.

It would be lovely to have computer electronic equipment easily distributed - at least they wouldn’t cut off supply this way.

Are proprietary drivers on Linux a possible privacy breach?
I want to know how much privacy I'm losing by using proprietary drivers on Debian for gaming. Can anyone help? I would very much like to know that. Can proprietary drivers fetch my activity on other apps I'm running on my PC, or on the Internet? And so on. Thank you.

About Microsoft Azure
Is it possible that Microsoft is using the remaining power of my machine to power paid Microsoft Azure machines? How would we go about that, and how does that fit in modern day capitalism (you don't even own your own machine)?

Learned the existence of this through some redditor. That's what we produce. Think of this before you take things at face value, maybe it's just attractive.

Distro recommendation
I'm having problems with Manjaro again, always after those big updates. Anyway, I'm moving from Manjaro since it seems it will not work (authorization isn't working properly). I already tried Ubuntu before (used it for 3 months), but moved on since file management in Ubuntu is pretty bad (had to use terminal to copy files and format drives because system wouldn't recognize me as administrator). I've been using Manjaro for 4 months and it's really good, the update problems ruin it. Anyway, I was thinking of moving on to something like Linux Mint, Debian or Fedora. I wanted something with support and with people that care for the code. What do you guys suggest? I ask because I don't want to encounter another distro changing problem with my next distro.

Do you guys know a Twitter frontend besides Nitter?
Nitter is fine, but I want to login and make comments on Twitter, and the pages feed element is blocked for me. I need an alternative. Thank you.

Big claims inbound. Quantum computing challenging reality as we know it.

Great talk about the status of Open Source. It starts off by talking about a developer leaving an open source project.
